I’ve been looking at http://myradiostream.com/ It’s also free… Have anyone ever tried them?
They provide you a radio stream webpage, which will be in the format myradiostream.com/yourname that has an embedded Flash player which will start playing your stream within a few seconds of going on to the page. There will also be some links for those that prefer to listen using Winamp or Windows Media Player.
I don’t see any specifics on how many listeners you can have, only the statement “With our fast, reliable servers, you don’t need to worry about your stream buffering when you get too many listeners for your connection to handle – we take care of the bandwidth requirements for you.”
You will never have to pay for streaming from MyRadioStream, however we do offer an upgrade option that has additional benefits to a free account.
How is it possible to give free Shoutcast servers away?
We can provide free Shoutcast servers because we serve ads on the webpage for your station. It costs many £100s every month to run high bandwidth streaming servers. This is why we ask you to link your listeners to your stream webpage rather than offering a direct tune in link to the Shoutcast server (which is disabled).
Once your listeners have visited your station page, the stream will start through our flash player, however they do then have the option to use their preferred player (such as Winamp, Windows Media or Real).
Once your listener is tuned in using an external player, they can navigate away from your stream webpage and continue listening.
Which would you say is the better choice Listen2MyRadio.com or myradiostream.com?
And why did you decide to drop Listentomyradio and host from your home computer instead?
